Continue your enjoyment of good food this holiday weekend with some really good bacon.
If you love bacon and love eating the best foods in general, then spend a little more for truly great bacon. With a specialty food brand, you get more meat, better meat, less fat and less salt, providing a truly superior bacon experience.
We love the bacon from Edwards, D’Artagnan (which also has boar and duck bacon), Niman Ranch and Nueske’s.
All of them are available online and at specialty food stores nationwide. For everyday eating, it’s easy for us to pick up Niman Ranch bacon at our local Whole Foods Market.
While not certified organic, Niman Ranch meats are raised on family farms on sustainable land, without hormones or antibiotics. Uncured, the bacon has no nitrites or nitrates. It’s available in Uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon, Uncured Canadian Bacon, Uncured Chipotle Bacon, Uncured Maple Bacon and Uncured Pepper Bacon.
We loved them all, although we felt the package of Chipotle we bought might have been mislabled—there wasn’t any chipotle flavor heat. It was still great bacon, though! We’ll pick up another package and try again.
Treat your taste buds to truly great bacon.
